Slashdot pillories Google co-founder Larry Page as a bumbling dilletante, or is he the genius that will save us from Microsoft?

In this graduation speech, Page who himself dropped out of college (ok, he took a leave of absence from a doctoral program at Stanford) gives some inspiring advice:

"...doing bigger things is easier than doing smaller things... if you do something really big, you can get other people to help you, and you can get more people to help you. You get more of the kind of resources that you need. So its worth thinking about those big things to get done in the world...Google's mission ... was to organize the worlds information. Make it universally accessible and useful. If you keep that in mind that will help you, help improve the world. New ideas are worthwhile, and you can have really good ideas that can have a big impact."
